Learn About Dental Restorations in Vancouver
Fillings are one of the most common methods of teeth restorations. Fillings can be made of various materials including composite or tooth-colored fillings and metal or silver amalgam fillings. Tooth-coloured fillings are preferred more often these days because they are metal free (which is better for those with sensitive teeth) and light-cured to match the natural color of your teeth.
Using dental exams, the staff at The Dentists at Northgate monitors the condition of your teeth, looking out for signs of decay. If you have a cavity, we will keep an eye on it if it is small or we’ll fill it in immediately if it has become too large. A large cavity, if left unattended, can get bigger and cause pain. It may even need to be removed and replaced with an artificial tooth if there is too much damage, so having your teeth examined is crucial.
